As a human, his name was Winslow. As a zombie, he’s been dubbed Gladiator Walker.

Fans of “The Walking Dead” can’t stop talking about last night’s epic Gladiator Walker, who undoubtedly stole the entire Mad Max-inspired episode. There were other great moments, such as Rick gifting Michonne a cat sculpture and Daryl finally reuniting with Carol, but damn! Was that Gladiator Walker flippen awesome! It’s Halloween material!

Greg Nicotero is obviously as into Gladiator Walker as we are, because he just shared a series of behind the scenes shots that provide some insight into the undead character’s creation. First off, he showed off a couple pieces of concept art that are truly amazing, and he also posted a photo of artist Norman Cabrera’s in-progress sculpt of the Gladiator Walker’s gnarly headpiece.

The only negative thing we found after seeing the Gladiator Walker… how did he know where Rick was the whole time? He cannot see?

Scott Gimple and I spent a lot of time designing this awesome Walker. Concept art by John Wheaton; sculpture by Norman Cabrera, John Wrightson and Garrett Immel; applied by the brilliant Jake Garber, Kerrin Jackson and Kevin Wasner! Thanks to Gino Crognale for reluctantly agreeing to play the zombie because I could’ve never had anybody else do it.

Check out the concept art below!
